458-508Jeff Myers, chairman of the board of Summit Ministries and President of Passing the Baton International (, and who, for the past 20 years, has been on the front lines of youth leadership development as a college professor, communicator, author and curriculum developer.  He's authored seven books including Handoff, and five video-coaching systems including Understanding the Times, the curriculum that introduced biblical worldview training to Christian schools around the world.  More than two million people have used Jeff's training courses in worldview, leadership and communication.

Jeff talks about the need for the church to "pass the baton" to the next generation through natural mentors.  20-somethings want to see "Incarnational Christianity" lived out before them.  The latest research shows these former Christian youth group members would have wanted more of three things during their teen years:  more deep conversations, more adults who truly cared about them, and more accountability. 

As the church, maybe we need to re-think our age-segregation at church, if young people are asking for more mentoring, how can we do that if we're regularly apart? Without life-on-life discipleship, especially with the next generation, we can expect this to be the last Christian generation

• Mercury News (12/8/09) Boxer compares denying women abortion coverage to denying men Viagra.  The Nelson-Hatch Amendment to prevent tax-payer funded abortion in the health care bill lost yesterday 54-45 – with all 40 Republicans opposing it, except for Maine "Republicans" Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, and 7 Pro-life Democrats also opposing it: Nelson (Neb), Conrad (ND), Pryor (Ark), Kaufman (Del), Casey (Pa), Dorgan (N.D.) and Bayh (Ind.).
Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D.-Md.) said yesterday it would be "morally wrong" for members of Congress to vote against the health care bill. asked Mikulski: "Is it morally right to take tax money from pro-life Americans and give it to health insurance plans that cover abortion?"

Mikulski said: "I think it's morally wrong to vote against health care, because if you really are pro-life--or as Richard Rick Warren says, "whole-life"--then universal access to health care that would guarantee maternity health, sound wonderful deliveries for children, and so on, I think that's what we want to do. I believe voting for universal access, ending the punitive practices of insurance companies, particularly their discrimination against women, is morally wrong."
(1:40) Boxer Abortion (Senate Floor, DC @ 12/8/09) If ObamaCare covers Viagra, why shouldn't it cover abortion?  "Why are women being singled out here? It's so unfair…We don't tell men that if they want to ... buy insurance coverage through their pharmaceutical plan for Viagra that they can't do it."

• Fred Krupp, WSJ (12/9/09) From Copenhagen to Congress: A climate deal needs a strong compliance and verification system. It's up to the U.S. Senate to provide one. Mr. Krupp is president of Environmental Defense Fund and co-author of "Earth: The Sequel" (W.W. Norton, 2008).
• Terry Jeffrey, CNS News (12/9/09) Redistributing America's Wealth at Copenhagen. Terence P. Jeffrey is the editor-in-chief of CNSNews.
Why would Obama vow to impose carbon caps on U.S. industries—a move certain to drive some industries overseas and kill manufacturing jobs here—when the United States is just emerging from a deep recession and still faces a 10 percent unemployment rate, and when Obama himself is trying to persuade Americans his policies will create jobs?
The answer might be found in the vision of global wealth redistribution that has been advocated by Obama's top science adviser, John P. Holdren. 

In 1973, Holdren co-wrote a book—"Human Ecology: Problems and Solutions"—with Anne H. Ehrlich and Paul R. Ehrlich, author of the 1968 bestseller "The Population Bomb." The book called for "de-development" of the United States and global redistribution of wealth. 

"A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States," Holdren and the Ehrlichs wrote on page 279 of the book. "De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation. Resources and energy must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling the genuine needs of underdeveloped countries." 

"Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided for every human being," Holdren and the Ehrlichs wrote.
